It’s on US.

As a community, we must all make ending sex discrimination a priority. However, some individuals at the university have been identified as having specific responsibility for reporting any behavior that has the potential to be discriminatory or harassing.


A responsible employee includes any employee:

  • who has the authority to take action to redress sex discrimination,
  • who has been given the duty of reporting incidents of sex discrimination, or any other misconduct, to the Title IX Coordinator or other appropriate school designee; or
  • an employee whom a person could reasonably believe has this authority or duty.

Unsure if the person you’re speaking to is a responsible employee? Follow these quick and easy steps:

  1. Just ask! RE’s are trained to identify their responsibilities and tell you if they are required to report.
  2. Look for the Responsible Employee logo on the person’s door, laptop, or elsewhere in their office or cubicle
  3. Search our database, available below in the spring of 2017.
